With Halloween approaching, several video games are having in-game activities to commemorate the occasion. Often, these celebrations include a slew of new ghastly cosmetics for players to gather, as well as ghostly modifications to maps and modes. Fortnite is a game that is no stranger to getting into the Halloween spirit. For years, the game has included an annual Fortnitemares event, and it appears to be much bigger this time around.
Fortnite has recently begun the 2021 edition of Fortnitemares. This new Halloween event for the battle royale appears to have a lot of seasonal stuff, such as new Quests that may win players “eerie prizes.” According to Epic Games, a Halloween narrative based on the famous Cube, which has appeared in previous seasons, will be released this month as well. Aside from this narrative, there are a variety of new Halloween-themed skins available for purchase throughout the event.
While many fans have grown to anticipate new skins to surface on a regular basis in the Item Shop, Fortnitemares looks to be bringing some stunning additions to the extensive list of Fortnite crossover skins. Famous Halloween movie icons such as Frankenstein’s Monster and The Mummy are among the skins released for the event.
In addition to these traditional Halloween monsters, costumes based on trick-or-treating and jack-o-lanterns are on the way. Skins from prior Fortnitemare events will also be returning to the Item Shop, according to the devs.
Other events planned for the month include the Short Nite film festival, which will take place during the event’s final week. The festival’s short films, according to the organizers, “will be centered on the ghoulish and ominous.”
Furthermore, new Halloween-themed maps, games, and experiences are now available for gamers to try out. This collection of modes, which is part of the “Fortnitemares” area in the playlist menu, contains material created by the community during the Fortnitemares Callout.
Additionally, the creators want to keep fans up to date on forthcoming Fortnite news via frequent blog entries on the Epic Games website, since Halloween-themed content is expected to be released throughout the month.
This year, Fortnite isn’t the only battle royale game that will feature Halloween-themed activities. Apex Legends and Call of Duty: Warzone will also have events later this month. According to new reports, Apex Legends is bringing back a variation of the Fight or Fright event. Many new monster-related skins appear to be featured in these leaks. Furthermore, Warzone revealed that the battle royale would hold The Haunting event immediately following the start of Season 6.
